Once we have the grafted cactus we need to pot them properly. A well aerated plastic container or ceramic pot is best for these decorative cactus plants. The potted soil formulated for cacti must contain two parts of loose soil, one part of red soil, and one part of organic manure. Almost all varieties of cactus plants can grow well in the above soil mixture. Fill the bottom of the pot with bronze pieces and then fill it with the soil mixture. Next place the cactus in the potting soil and put a layer of gavel on top of the potting soil around the base of the cactus. This helps in retaining moisture and keeps the soil aerated. Since a cactus does not wilt at the first sign of a drought, it is better to water when the top 3 centimeters of soil is dry. Repeated application of manures is not necessary as this can lead to stem rot, ultimately leading to plant decay. It would be appropriate to keep this decorative cactus plants in a shady region.
The pot mixture of a cactus that has not attained complete maturity, must be changed once in a year. Choose a bigger pot every time you change the pot mixture, to ensure faster growth of the plant. But if the plant has already attained maturity then there is no point in changing the pot after changing the soil mixture. Instead just remove the rotten and dried up roots. For healing the cuts made after removing them, keep the potted plant in a shady region for three days. If we are redoing the potted mixture then do not water it for seven days. Also provide it with manure and compost as required, during the soil-mixture change.
